As I said, the init= syntax is *NOT* a bug in mkinitcpio. It is an
upstream klibc issue. It will require changes to the klibc code. It is
not super critical right now, but I will complete the patch in the
near future. Please do not worry about this issue, I will deal with

FS#9433 is a silly issue, and not a big deal
FS#9813 I don't understand. Everything seems to work fine, so I'm not
sure why this is needed. Obviously not a showstopper though.
